Discover two gems of the French Riviera with this delightful half-day shore excursion from Cannes. Soak up the medieval charm and hilltop views in Eze, and treat your senses with a visit to the Fragonard perfume factory. Explore tiny, glamorous Monaco, where you’ll visit the tomb of Princess Grace, take in the action of the Formula One Grand Prix race track and see where the world’s high rollers come to play at Monte Carlo’s Casino Square. Numbers are limited to eight people for a personalized small-group experience.
What to Expect
Make the most of your time at port when your cruise ship docks in Cannes. Meet your guide at the cruise terminal and hop aboard a minivan for a scenic, 1-hour drive up the coast to Eze. 

Situated at an altitude of 1,400 feet (427 meters) between Nice and Monaco, this charming medieval town features spectacular views of the Côte d'Azur. Explore Eze’s cobblestone streets and artistic heritage with a guided walking tour, and indulge your nose with a visit to the renowned Fragonard perfume factory. 

Journey along the beautiful Middle Corniche road, stopping at the village of La Turbie. Admire the views from this town known as the 'Terrace of Monaco’ and see the Trophy of the Alps ancient Roman monument. 

Cross the border into Monaco, the second smallest country in the world. Learn about the history of this glamorous principality as you witness the Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Prince’s Palace (morning tour only) and visit the final resting place of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier III at the Monaco Cathedral.

Experience the excitement of the famous Formula One Grand Prix with a spin around part of the race circuit, and see the high-stakes glitz of Monte Carlo’s Casino Square. Relax and enjoy views of the Mediterranean on the drive back to Cannes, where you’ll be dropped off back at the cruise terminal.

The vehicle we had seated 8 people. You would have to contact the tour company to see if they have bigger vehicles if you have more passengers

If you do the half-day tour it is a photo-op but you do get to stop off and walk around a bit. You can go inside, however, I don't know if they allow you to play or not, but you definitely won't have sufficient time.
